Those who are close to me know that I’m an avid Apple fan boy. Every time a new Apple device or gadget is announced, I’m always right there ready to get my hands on it, especially if it’s an iPhone. Along with getting the latest Apple goodness, I would always get AppleCare to make sure I’m protected, just in case anything happened to my phone.
One of the more interesting parts about being a kid was thinking about what you want to be when you grow up. I am sure most of you can relate. The problem is, once you did become an adult and made a few career shifts, did you ever wish you stayed with what you started? Have you ever experienced “Switcher Remorse”?
Keeping up with all the social media sites can be challenging. Yesterday I posted on Twitter, G+ and Instagram. I’m having trouble finding time to keep up with Facebook or to learn Periscope. It’s always interesting to see which posts spark the most engagement on which site. I can post something that initiates a long conversation on Twitter, yet that same post will be lukewarm on G+ and vice versa. It all got me thinking about content, and what kind of content is the most popular on each social network.
I read today that 87% of all customer service related comments on social media are ignored by brands. I don’t know if that number is correct, but if it is, it seems high to me. That is a lot of ignored tweets, Facebook feedback, Instagram comments and other social media opportunities for engagement that are just dangling out there somewhere.
Stress can take a huge toll on our productivity and health, I am sure everyone wants to reduce the stress they feel, but it can be a challenge especially when we get overwhelmed with busy family and work demands.
Too much stress can lead to physical problems including headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pains and problem sleeping. Research also suggests that stress can bring on or worsen diseases.
